Onions (finely chopped) – 2 medium

Green peas (boiled) – 1/2 cup

Cheese (grated) – 1/4 cup

Cheese – 4 cubes

Fresh coriander leaves (finely chopped) – 1/4 cup

Aloo bhujia sev (semi crushed) – 1 cup (the red one which is spicy and tangy, not the white one)

Cumin Powder – 1 tsp

Coriander powder – 1 tsp

Amchur powder – 1 tsp

Garam masala powder – 1 tsp

Ginger-green chilly paste – 2 tsp

1) In a bowl take the boiled potatoes, green peas, finely chopped onions, coriander leaves, grated cheese, semi crushed aloo bhujia sev, kashmiri red chilly powder, cumin powder, coriander powder, amchur powder, garam masala powder, ginger-green chilly paste and salt and mix and mash all of it together to form a filling. Cover and keep aside for 5 minutes for all the spices to mix well.

2) Take one roti. Apply green chutney on the entire roti generously. On one side of the roti apply the filling, as prepared above, and the other side place the sliced onions. Now sprinkle chat masala powder on the entire roti. Grate one cheese cube on the roti. Now fold the roti in a semi circle shape.
